Keeping Watch Over Our Waters Since 1994
This is our calling: To ensure there’s enough clean water in the Chattahoochee River now and for future generations. Here’s how we do it:
We teach students, homeowners, businesses and policy-makers the importance of clean, plentiful water.
We conduct research, patrol the river, collect and monitor data, review permits, and hold polluters accountable.
We advocate for water protection legislation and promote sustainable water plans and policies.
With your help, CRK has made the river—and our corner of the world—a better place, by:
- Preventing billions of gallons of raw sewage and illegal discharges from entering the river
- Removing 850 tons of trash from our waterways
- Providing experiential river education to thousands of students
- Patrolling hundreds of miles of waterways
- Fighting for clean water in the courtroom, and more.
2017 By the Numbers
You can make a difference
Here are some ways you can get involved.
The We Serve People Restaurant Group houses the culinary and entertainment concepts of Atlanta based chef Calavino Donati and Musician/Activist Doria Roberts. It is here where the couple passionately marries food and the arts with their various philanthropic efforts and interests. While “Farm to Ear” promotes and supports locavores and local music, “Sip + Salvage” (part swap meet/party cocktail party) raises awareness about the importance of upcycling and repurposing.
Their latest effort, “The Green Tea Initiative”, focuses on water and the use (and abuse) of it in cafe culture. The project’s ultimate goal is to bring actionable awareness to the forefront by implementing a nationally recognized “green certification status” for environmental stewards in the industry who serve you “The World in Your Cup”.
